    Two masters of epic fantasy have combined in this brilliant collaboration to create a rousing tale. This is the story of Shana, a half-breed born of the forbidden union of an Elvenlord father with a human mother. Her exiled mother dead, Shana was rescued and raised by dragons, a proud, ancient race who existed unbeknownst to elven or human kind. From birth, Shana was the embodiment of the Prophecy that the all-powerful Elvenlords feared. Her destiny is the enthralling adventure of a lifetime.

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    What made the experience of listening to Monster Hunter International the most enjoyable?

    Everything! The attention to detail when it comes to weapons, monsters, backstorys. The Twists, the writing style. The Epic fights! It was a 100 percent win in my book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Owen Z Pitt. He's the embodyment of hardcorps Badassery! Knows his guns, and keeps his wits about him even in the most dangerous of situations, and he killed a werewolf with his bare hands. You don't top that.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Life's a bitch and then you die. . . If your lucky.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recomend every single one of Larry Correias books. I have never been disappointed except at the end of his books knowing that I have to wait for the next one to come out. BRILLIANT AUTHOR!! 10 STARS ALL ROUND!!
